More on the cultrual differences front...

I have to review a book of my choice for the class I have been writing about. It is supposed to be a book that deals with cultural issues. I have chosen a book entitled "It's not mean if it's true," by Michael Thomas Ford. The book is a satiristic look at homosexual issues.

What struck me as interesting was when I was looking at the "Cultural Issues" section at Barnes and Noble, I noticed there was not one book in the entire section that could be described as "anti" cultrual. That is, every book had the presupposition that whatever culture was being explored was in a defacto "oppressed" status. Not one book entitled "I am black in America, and it really doesn't matter that much." That's because the minorities who feel that way are too busy living the American dream.

Very one dimensional. At least the author I chose seems to have a sense of humor about himself. Stay tuned...
